What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a form of botulinum toxin, which is made from a naturally-occurring protein that helps to relax muscle movement. While BOTOX® can be injected into different parts of the body and is used for medical purposes, BOTOX® Cosmetic is used strictly on the face and neck for cosmetic improvements.
Unlike fillers, BOTOX® Cosmetic doesn’t simply fill in the lines and wrinkles of the face, but rather addresses their underlying causes: the contraction of the facial muscles. Frowning, squinting, and moving the eyebrows causes wrinkles, folds, and furrows in the skin. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface to smooth out moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines, helping you achieve the youthful, rejuvenated look you’re seeking.
What are the Benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved, and patients typically notice a difference in their skin within just 24 to 48 hours. BOTOX® Cosmetic has been a popular cosmetic treatment since its introduction in 1989 and has an established, successful track record, including decades of published studies exploring its safety and effectiveness. Since it has been around longer than many treatments in the cosmetic industry, the results of BOTOX® Cosmetic are both subtle and predictable, which is why it has been approved for use in countries across the world. Overall, it’s a natural-looking, trusted way to improve the look and feel of your skin.
